Interview: AAA catch up with hotly-tipped Scots band Vistas

Tomorrow (Friday, 29 May) sees the release of Everything Changes In The End, the eagerly-awaited debut album from hotly-tipped Scottish trio Vistas.

Everything Changes In The End is a record bursting with feel good indie tracks, and is long awaited after three years of singles and EPs, and hundreds of live shows and festivals across the UK and beyond.

The album is packed full of teenage nostalgia encapsulating lost loves, new loves, long summers and unbreakable friendships.

Playing suitably huge melodies against a colossal instrumental backdrop, the series of tracks effortlessly showcase why 2020 is going to be theirs for the taking.

AAA caught up Vistas for a quick High 5 to mark the album’s release.

  1. Favourite Film

There’s so many films I love but one I can always go back to is ‘Whiplash’. I think it’s an amazing (and at times crazy) story and it also shows a side of what dedicating every part of yourself to music can be like. Some other class movies I watched recently were Midsommar, Uncut Gems, The Meyerowitz Stories, Spirited Away and Supersonic. (Prentice)

  1. Favourite single

We’re really enjoying The Academic’s new single ‘Anything Could Happen’. Their album ‘Tales From The Backseat’ is brilliant. They continuously release great music. (Jamie)

  1. Favourite album

Collectively our favourite album is ‘Hats Off To The Buskers’ by The View. There isn’t a bad song on it. That album really got all 3 of us into music. It made us believe an indie band from Scotland could be successful. (Jamie)

  1. Favourite gig

We went to see The Strokes at Hyde Park in 2015. Beck and Future Islands were supporting. That was the first time we’ve seen The Strokes so it was pretty special. (Jamie)

  1. Favourite book

‘Ayoade on Ayoade’ by Richard Ayoade is the only book I’ve ever read that’s properly made me laugh out loud. It’s written in such an original and unique way that’s too hard to describe. Definitely check it out. (Prentice)
